Dear Fellow Linguists,
Today we are rolling out our first Publisher Prize lottery! In our lottery for this coming week, we are showcasing some pretty cool bundle of prizes from our Supporting Publishers. This is how the lottery is going to work: for every $10 that you donate, your name is entered to win one of these very linguistic-y prizes. So, if you donate $50, your name will be entered 5 times, and that increases your chances of winning that much more. Even if you can only donate $20 or $30, you still have a good chance of winning!
Here is the list of the prizes we're giving away in our first prize bundle:
From Brill: 2 one-year journal subscriptions to the journal Cognitive Semantics (you can read more about the journal here: http://goo.gl/FLaZqC). This one is for the cognitive linguists and the semanticists among you.
From Cambridge University Press: The Cambridge Handbook of Endangered Languages (http://goo.gl/GrqenL),edited by Peter K. Austin and Julia Sallabank. If you are interested in documenting endangered languages and the underlying causes of language endangerment, this will be the book for you.
From De Gruyter Mouton: an e-book of Vowel-Shifting in the English Language by Kamil Kazmierski. This book would be ideal for those among you interested in Optimality Theory and evolutionary phonology. Read more about the book here: http://goo.gl/DvXsGh

Also, if you cannot donate monetarily, you can donate your time by helping spread the word about our Fund Drive. You can do so by liking, sharing, and retweeting on social media, as well as telling others in your department and your local linguistic community the old-fashioned way by word of mouth!
In addition to the one-time donations to our Fund Drive, you can also become a recurring donor and support LINGUIST List on a long-term basis. Find out how by following this link:

The LINGUIST List is under the umbrella of Indiana University and as such can receive donations through the eLinguistics Foundation, which is a registered 501(c) Non Profit organization. Our Federal Tax number is 45-4211155. These donations can be offset against your federal and sometimes your state tax return (U.S. tax payers only). For more information visit the IRS Web-Site, or contact your financial advisor.
Many companies also offer a gift matching program, such that they will match any gift you make to a non-profit organization. Normally this entails your contacting your human resources department and sending us a form that the eLinguistics Foundation fills in and returns to your employer. This is generally a simple administrative procedure that doubles the value of your gift to LINGUIST, without costing you an extra penny. Please take a moment to check if your company operates such a program.
